There are many amazing restaurants in New Zealand and here is a list of the best including some information on what makes them so special.
Mudbrick Restaurant And Vineyard
This European restaurant located on Waiheke Island is actually set in the best winery in the region. The food is delicious and the wine is out of this world, as is to be expected. The pristine gardens and brick buildings make this an absolutely wonderful place to dine.
With the best service and high-quality food, what’s not to love about this restaurant? The best thing about Roots is that all the ingredients used in the dishes are homegrown and their menu actually changes regularly to compliment what is in season at that moment in time. The restaurant is relaxed with a great atmosphere and there is even a pretty private garden too.
Pegasus Bay Winery And Restaurant
The food at Pegasus is actually chosen to complement the wine they have available and there is no doubt that the flavours blend together beautifully. Seasonal produce is celebrated at this restaurant and there is nothing artificial about the menu, it’s diverse but with as few ingredients as possible. There is a modern style to the interior of the establishment which is very welcoming.
Amisfield Winery And Bistro
Lake Hayes is a gorgeous location and this winery and bistro look over it, which truly makes for an amazing spot to eat and drink. There is a tasting menu, which allows you to be adventurous, try new flavours and hopefully open your eyes to the variety of food in New Zealand. Choosing to “trust the chef” means you do not know what you are getting until it’s brought out to your table. In addition to the food, the service here is amazing, there is an amazing wine list and the vibes are very welcoming.
